Get out your magnifying glasses, flip open your notebooks and bring up a new Google tab, detectives, because The Masked Singer returns Wednesday with a lot of big clues! The remaining singers from Group A are hitting the stage this week -- as well as an all-new wild card contestant -- and it means an all new opportunity to dive into the mysteries of Fox's hit competition series.

While the music and performances make the show great, it's the wild guessing game at the core of the show that make it such an obsession for the super fans! We're here to break down all the fresh new hints, dish on the fun spoilers and collect all the clues about the hidden celebs' secret identities.

From hints buried deep in the show's various clue packages throughout the season, to some of the internet's best guesses and aggregated deductions, we're compiling a comprehensive breakdown of every piece of evidence to try and crack the case of who's under each elaborate mask.

We're also here to keep track of everyone who's been unmasked, just like we did for season 1, for season 2, for season 3 (where we nailed nearly every prediction), for season 4 and for the surprisingly challenging season 5! And, as more stars are unmasked over the course of the season, ET will update this master list with new clues and theories about the celebrity inside each costume. For now, here's a look at what we know thus far about each season 5 character.
 

MOTHER NATURE -- **REVEALED!!

Mother Nature
Michael Becker / FOX

The Clues Packages:

From Ep. 1 -- 

The Internets Most Popular Guesses: Niecy Nash, Vivica A. Fox 

Our Wild, Random, Probably Wrong First Impression Guess Based on the Costume: Shailene Woodley 

Our Best Guess: Okay, so after the first episode, we are sure of one thing: It's not Shailene Woodley. With all the foxes on stage during her performance, the internet's Vivica A. Fox guess seems to be a strong possibility, but it's hard to tell. Also, Wayne Brady was in the clue package, and he won the second season of Masked Singer as The Fox! Although since she got the boot at the end of the premiere, we'll know soon enough.

And The Star Is...

... Vivica A. Fox! The internet sleuths nailed it!
 

THE BULL

The Bull
Michael Becker / FOX

The Clues:

From Ep. 1 -- 

1. Says, "I grew up in a small, small town that was surrounded by cows. Most people in the town didn't really go anywhere, but I've always had bigger dreams! So, I left and traveled around the entire world looking for my destiny."

2. Says he wants to be the "greatest of all time."

3. The Bull has an old-timey map with the city of "Cooperstown" highlighted -- the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

4. Says, "The doors I knocked on simply didn't open. I heard 'No' again and again and again. I didn't give up and eventually Hollywood, and even Forbes, took notice."

5. The Bull rows through a nebulous surreal realm of colors and see The Astronaut floating in the sky.

6. He walks up onto a beach where a stuffed animal lion is sitting on a rock.

7. Says, "There's so much left for me to prove, and I want to do that here."

From Ep. 2 -- 

1. Says, "When I was in school, I marched to the beat of my own drum."

2. Says, "There was one place I felt the most free to be myself: My garage. In that dusty space, I created my own world. I played shows, I gave the best performances."

3. He holds up a framed photo of the Disney Concert Hall in LA.

4. Says his garage shows were always sold out, "At least in my head, they were sold out."

-- From Ep. 4:

- We see some scrubs and a stethoscope.

- We see a flyer for Carnegie Hall.

- Says, "As a kid, I was actually a wall flower, but now I'm the life of the party."

- Says there couldn't be a better time to sing the song he's gonna perform tonight to show support and solidarity with the "one and only Britney Spears."

- Says, "I definitely know I have what it takes and tonight I get to be in the center of the ring."

The Internets Most Popular Guesses: Todrick Hall, Bernie Williams, Kel Mitchell.

Our Wild, Random, Probably Wrong First Impression Guess Based on the Costume: Aaron Rodgers

Our Best Guess: A lot of the clues point to Todrick Hall. From the clues in Ep. 1, he was once mentioned in Forbes' 30 Under 30 to Watch" issue. The Disney Concert Hall and Carnegie Hall both have "Hall" in their names. He was born and raised in  Plainview, Texas -- a town surrounded by cows and cattle farming. Also, it just really sounds exactly like him.
 

THE PUFFER FISH -- **REVEALED!!

The Puffer Fish
Michael Becker / FOX

The Clue Packages:

-- From Ep. 1

-- From Ep. 2:

Our Wild, Random, Probably Wrong First Impression Guess Based on the Costume: Addison Rae

Our Best Guess: Well, it could be a TikTok star, like Robin guessed during the premiere, but there's nothing conclusive. The Toni Braxton guess that Twitter is obsessed with holds water -- the mirror ball in the space ship gives real Dancing With the Stars vibes, and she competed on DWTS.

And the Star Is:

... seven-time GRAMMY winner Toni Braxton!


THE SKUNK

Skunk
Michael Becker / FOX

The Clues:

-- From Ep.1:

1. Says, "I chose to be the skunk because I relate to the duality. The yin and yang of it all."

2. We see her looking at a model train that rolls by, and then she's seen in a train car.

3. Says, "While life's not always black and white, there are always certainly two sides to every story. And I'm here to tell mine."

4. On the train car, we see people reading newspaper with the main headline "Has the Golden Ear Winner Lost Her Mind?" and a photo of Jenny.

5. She's carrying a large pink purse/bag with golden adornments.

6. Says, "Over the years, I've seen it all, honey." This likely indicates she's been in the business for a while.

7 Her train ticket lists her departure location as "Seoul, South Korea," and her destination as "The Masked Singer."

8. Says, "There might be misconceptions that I'm quick to get into a fight, but honey that couldn't be further from the truth. I've learned you don't always have to react when provoked."

9. We see a decorative vase with the letter "D." Robin suggests this means D-vase, or "Divas."

10. In the entire clue package, two Men in Black keep trying to steal her bag and attack her, and she fights them off like a movie spy.

11. Says, "I took a break for a minute to focus on family, but I'm ready to get back out there and make it do what it do, boo."

12. She sprays the attackers in the face with a can labeled "Hater Spray."

-- From Ep. 2

1. Says, "I feel like I am forever a student. But you know, the biggest thing you learn is that life happens."
 
2. We see her looking through shelves of old books and pulling out a tome titled "US Government."

3. Says, "School was always easy for me. I had a full-ride scholarship when I got some unexpected news that changed everything."

4. She pulls out a book titled "Expect the Unexpected."

5. She walks past a person reading "The Big Book of Acting."

6. Says, "I was forced to take a different course. But I learned life lessons I'd never get in the classroom."

7. She holds up a book called "Iron Out Your Swing" with a golf club on the cover.

8. Says, "Success isn't measured by a diploma. And it turns out that pivot in my life was the greatest degree I could ever get."

9. Says, "I decided to sing a song for all the women out there who put their own dream on hold for others. To remind them the world is theirs."

-- From Ep. 4:

1. Says, "Listen, I've been to some of the most epic parties around 

2. We see her blow a kiss to The Pufferfish (which could mean she knows Toni Braxton).

3. She picks up a plate of snacks including grapes, shrimp and a pink box of "Family Size Cookies."

4. Says, "I actually used to be the hostess with the mostest. But these days I limit the people that I allow into my perrsonal space."

5. We see a disco ball and The Skunk dances a disco number with some of the Men in Black.

6. Says, "When you get older you realize it's OK to remove them from your life."

7. Says she's going to be "singing about something I can relate to. Leaving the glitzy and glamourous parties for a simpler  more positive life."

The Internets Most Popular Guesses: Faith Evans

Our Wild, Random, Probably Wrong First Impression Guess Based on the Costume: Janelle Monae

Our Best Guess: Faith Evans is actually a great guess. Robin thinks it off the bat, plus she gives some clues about people thinking she's always "quick to get into a fight," and Evans has had a few high-profile run-ins with the law for that very reason. As for the South Korea clue, it could be a reference to BTS having recently covered her song "I'll Be Missing You."
 

THE OCTOPUS -- **REVEALED!!

Octopus
Michael Becker / FOX

The Clue Package:

From Ep. 1 -- 

The Internets Most Popular Guesses: Eliminated 1st Episode

Our Wild, Random, Probably Wrong First Impression Guess Based on the Costume: Adam Driver

Our Best Guess: N/A

And the Star Is...

... NBA superstar Dwight Howard!

 

THE BABY (Wild Card Contestant) -- **REVEALED!!

The Baby
Michael Becker / FOX

The Clues Packages:

--From Ep. 2

The Internets Most Popular Guesses: Jack Black, Johnny Knoxville

Our Wild, Random, Probably Wrong First Impression Guess Based on the Costume: Danny DeVito

Our Best Guess: Like the panel, we have no idea. If it's a comedian, it's possible that it could be Larry the Cable Guy. Larry was in Jingle All the Way 2, and when he sings, it sounds like Mater from Cars singing Barry White. So it would fit.

And the Star Is:

... Larry the Cable Guy! We technically called it, but in reality it was a pretty random blind guess. But we'll take it!
